Q. Average age of A, B & C is 32 years, what will the age of A after three year?
I . Ratio between age of A and C is 11 : 12, while age of B is 9 years less than C.
II . Ratio between age of A & B is 11 : 9 , while between B & C is 9 : 12.

Solution:

Total age of A, B & C = 32 × 3 = 96 years
From I -
Let age of A & C be 11x and 12x respectively
And age of B = (12x - 9)
11x + ((12x – 9) + 12x = 96
35x = 105
x = 3 years
Age of A three year hence = 11 × 3 + 3 = 36 years
From II -
Ratio of age of A, B & C = 11 : 9 : 12
Let age of A, B & C is 11a , 9a & 12a respectively
11a + 9a + 12a = 96
a = 3 years
Age of A three year hence = 11 × 3 + 3 = 36 years

II . Speed of smaller & longer train is 108 km/hr & 96 km/hr respectively. Both trains cross each other in 99/17 sec running opposite direction and smaller train crosses platform ‘P’ in 10 sec.

Solution:

Let the length of smaller & longer train be 4l & 7l respectively

Lenth of smaller train = 120 m
Lenth of Longer train = 210 m

Let time by longer train is t sec to cross platform

Lenth of smaller train = 120 m
Lenth of Longer train = 210 m

Let time by longer train is t sec to cross platform

So, Either I or II alone sufficient to give answer of the question.

I . Share of B is 10 times of share of C, while share of A is 20% more than B.
II . Difference between share of B & C together and share A is 184.5.

Solution:

From I -
Let share of C = x Rs.
So, share of B = 10x Rs.
Share of A = 10x × 1.2 = 12x Rs.
From I & II –
12x - (10x+x)=184,5
x = 184.5
Difference between share of A & B = 12 × 184.5 – 10 × 184.5 = 369 Rs.
So, statement I & II together sufficient to give answer of the question.

Q. Choose the correct option for blank no.57

Solution:

Option (b) is the correct answer.
The theme of the paragraph is controlling speech through controlling mind. The blank must be filled by an adjective that will go opposite in meaning to ‘control’. Moreover, the verb ‘to avoid’ reflects that a negative word should be filled in the blank. The word ‘incited’ which means encourage or stir up, is completely against the theme and is the correct choice to get eliminated.
On the other hand, unbridled which means uncontrolled or unconstrained reflects the appropriate meaning that makes the paragraph comprehensive. All the other options are also conveying the similar context to the paragraph.

Q. Choose the correct option for blank no.58

Solution:

‘expunges’ is the correct answer choice.
The sentence must be completed with the verb that tells the relationship between spiritual path and disciplined mind.
‘Demands’ which means requires is the correct word for the blank. Other options except ‘expunges’ are also conveying a similar meaning to the sentence. Expunge, which means obliterate or remove completely does not make any sense to the sentence fails to comply with the theme of the paragraph.
Hence option (a) is the correct choice.
Necessitates means make (something) necessary as a result or consequence.
Entails means involve (something) as a necessary or inevitable part or consequence.

Solution:

‘repealing’ is the wrong word to be filled in the blank.
Here the simultaneous relation has been provided in the sentence that is controlling mind through controlling speech and controlling speech through controlling mind.
Hence the word that fills the blank must be a synonym of ‘controlled’. All the other words except ‘repealing’ are appropriate for delivering the meaning to the sentence as repealing means revoking or annulling which is not appropriate for the sentence.
Hence option (e) is the right choice.
Reining means keeping under control.
Curbing means keeping in check or restrain.

Be it the rural Bengal, soggy with pathos after a squall /that ravaged in a poor priest's life or the corporate urban life, where/ stepping up the social ladder means /alienation from your near /and dear ones, Ray's camera captured all that more to give/his audience what they had not seen before on silver screenNo error

Solution:

All the expressions provided in the options possess errors. In the first expression, there is prepositional error i.e., in place of ‘ ravaged in’’ it should be ‘ ravaged through’ which is used to depict the destruction as experienced by the rural Bengal and which can be depicted from the example of poor priest’s life. In case of second expression, it should be ‘ climb up the stair’ instead of ‘ step up the ladder’ which means going places or becoming famous. In case of third expression, give will be replaced by gave as the sentence is in past tense. Therefore, all the expressions contain errors.

It is to be noted that the stress is laid on additional restriction in the plethora of restrictions already existing. Hence, it should take plural verb ‘ flow’ after it. In case of expression provided in option (b), ‘ Even though’ is not fitting in the context of the sentence and therefore to make the sentence meaningful and grammatical correct, it should be replaced with ‘ Since’ to make it contextually correct. As ‘ since’ shows the already existing situation. ‘ Even though’ means ‘despite the fact’ which do not fit in the context of the sentence and hence it needs improvement.

QUESTION: 71

Read the following passage divided into number of paragraphs carefully and answer the questions that follow it. Certain words are given in underline to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

It used to be an axiom of liberalism that freedom meant inalienable self-ownership. You were your own property. You could lease yourself to an employer for a limited period, and for a mutually agreed price, but your property rights over yourself could not be bought or sold. Over the past two centuries, this liberal individualist perspective legitimized capitalism as a “natural” system populated by free agents. A capacity to fence off a part of one’s life, and to remain sovereign and self-driven within those boundaries, was paramount to the liberal conception of the free agent and his or her relationship with the public sphere. To exercise freedom, individuals needed a safe haven within which to develop as genuine persons before relating—and transacting—with others. Once constituted, our personhood was to be enhanced by commerce and industry—networks of collaboration across our personal havens, constructed and revised to satisfy our material and spiritual needs.
But the dividing line between personhood and the external world upon which liberal individualism based its concepts of autonomy, self-ownership, and, ultimately, freedom could not be maintained.
The first breach appeared as industrial products became passé and were replaced by brands that captured the public’s attention, admiration, and desire. Before long, branding took a radical new turn, imparting “personality” to objects. Once brands acquired personalities, individuals felt compelled to re-imagine themselves as brands. And today, with colleagues, employers, clients, detractors, and “friends” constantly surveying our online life, we are under incessant pressure to evolve into a bundle of activities, images, and dispositions that amounts to an attractive, sellable brand. The personal space essential to the autonomous development of an authentic self—the condition that makes inalienable self-ownership possible—is now almost gone.
Consider young people striking out in the world today. For the most part, those without a trust fund or generous unearned income end up in one of two categories. The many are condemned to labour under zero-hour contracts and wages so low that they must work all available hours to make ends meet, rendering offensive any talk of personal time, space, or freedom. The rest are told that, to avoid falling into this soul-destroying “precariat”, they must invest in their own brand every waking hour of every day. As if in a Panopticon, they cannot hide from the attention of those who might give them a break (or know others who might). Before posting any tweet, watching any movie, sharing any photograph or chat message, they must remain mindful of the networks they please or alienate.
Keynes’ beauty contest sheds light on the tragedy of many young people today. They try to work out what average opinion among opinion-makers believes is the most attractive of their own potential “true” selves, and simultaneously struggle to manufacture this “true” self online and offline, at work and at home—indeed, everywhere and always. Entire industries of counsellors and coaches, and varied ecosystems of substances and self-help, have emerged to guide them on this quest. The irony is that liberal individualism seems to have been defeated by a totalitarianism that is neither fascist nor communist, but which grew out of its own success at legitimizing the encroachment of branding and commodification into our personal space.
To defeat it, and thus rescue the liberal idea of freedom as self-ownership, may require a comprehensive reconfiguration of property rights over the increasingly digitized instruments of production, distribution, collaboration, and communication. Would it not be a splendid paradox if, 200 years after the birth of Karl Marx, we decided that, in order to save liberalism, we must return to the idea that freedom demands the end of unfettered commodification and the socialization of property rights over capital goods?

Q. In which context the author has used the phrase ‘fence off’?

Solution:

We can imply our answer from the phrase used in first paragraph “self-driven within those boundaries ” that means that there is a part of life which is not driven by others.
Hence option (c) is the correct choice.
Refer the lines “A capacity to fence off a part of one’s life, and to remain sovereign and self-driven within those boundaries, was paramount to the liberal conception of the free agent and his or her relationship with the public sphere.”

Q. How is it correct to say that the habitat of liberalism is disappearing?

Solution:

Habitat of liberalism is disappearing nowadays with industrial products being replaced by brands and acquired by personalities and hence they are known by the brands. Moreover, the activities are always surveyed through online and one’s choice is dependent on other’s opinion.
Hence, we can say that the habitat of liberalism is disappearing and thus indicating option (e) to be correct.

QUESTION: 78

Read the following passage divided into number of paragraphs carefully and answer the questions that follow it. Certain words are given in underline to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

It used to be an axiom of liberalism that freedom meant inalienable self-ownership. You were your own property. You could lease yourself to an employer for a limited period, and for a mutually agreed price, but your property rights over yourself could not be bought or sold. Over the past two centuries, this liberal individualist perspective legitimized capitalism as a “natural” system populated by free agents. A capacity to fence off a part of one’s life, and to remain sovereign and self-driven within those boundaries, was paramount to the liberal conception of the free agent and his or her relationship with the public sphere. To exercise freedom, individuals needed a safe haven within which to develop as genuine persons before relating—and transacting—with others. Once constituted, our personhood was to be enhanced by commerce and industry—networks of collaboration across our personal havens, constructed and revised to satisfy our material and spiritual needs.
But the dividing line between personhood and the external world upon which liberal individualism based its concepts of autonomy, self-ownership, and, ultimately, freedom could not be maintained.
The first breach appeared as industrial products became passé and were replaced by brands that captured the public’s attention, admiration, and desire. Before long, branding took a radical new turn, imparting “personality” to objects. Once brands acquired personalities, individuals felt compelled to re-imagine themselves as brands. And today, with colleagues, employers, clients, detractors, and “friends” constantly surveying our online life, we are under incessant pressure to evolve into a bundle of activities, images, and dispositions that amounts to an attractive, sellable brand. The personal space essential to the autonomous development of an authentic self—the condition that makes inalienable self-ownership possible—is now almost gone.
Consider young people striking out in the world today. For the most part, those without a trust fund or generous unearned income end up in one of two categories. The many are condemned to labour under zero-hour contracts and wages so low that they must work all available hours to make ends meet, rendering offensive any talk of personal time, space, or freedom. The rest are told that, to avoid falling into this soul-destroying “precariat”, they must invest in their own brand every waking hour of every day. As if in a Panopticon, they cannot hide from the attention of those who might give them a break (or know others who might). Before posting any tweet, watching any movie, sharing any photograph or chat message, they must remain mindful of the networks they please or alienate.
Keynes’ beauty contest sheds light on the tragedy of many young people today. They try to work out what average opinion among opinion-makers believes is the most attractive of their own potential “true” selves, and simultaneously struggle to manufacture this “true” self online and offline, at work and at home—indeed, everywhere and always. Entire industries of counsellors and coaches, and varied ecosystems of substances and self-help, have emerged to guide them on this quest. The irony is that liberal individualism seems to have been defeated by a totalitarianism that is neither fascist nor communist, but which grew out of its own success at legitimizing the encroachment of branding and commodification into our personal space.
To defeat it, and thus rescue the liberal idea of freedom as self-ownership, may require a comprehensive reconfiguration of property rights over the increasingly digitized instruments of production, distribution, collaboration, and communication. Would it not be a splendid paradox if, 200 years after the birth of Karl Marx, we decided that, in order to save liberalism, we must return to the idea that freedom demands the end of unfettered commodification and the socialization of property rights over capital goods?

Q. Which of the following alternatives among the five options provides the most similar meaning(s) of the word given in Underline as used in the passage?
